Life has been moving pretty quickly these days: Harlow is too.

My girl has the most infectious giggle you ever did hear.
Her smile uses every face muscle + lights up the room.
The hair growing on her head is strawberry blonde + couldn’t be cuter.

I’m so in love.  

Last night as we read before bed, she was antsy + animated: never really sitting still or quiet for each book.  That is, until we read together from her Jesus Storybook Bible.

She got quiet.
We read page, after page: full of words + few pictures.
She listened, even though I know most of it she still doesn’t understand.
We read about Jesus + children.  We read about how we can pray + just have a conversation with Him.
I told her that God loves her sweet voice.

Then I asked her if she wanted to pray.  She looked at me + grabbed both of my hands in hers.

And this momma prayed for her little girl, with tears in her eyes, audibly asking for His protection + blessing over her.  Silently asking that He would help me not screw it up.   That I would put Him before all.  My husband before my kids.  + my kids before the long list of to-do’s.

But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”  Matthew 19:14 NLT

I’m still in awe that He’s entrusted her to us.  Lord, I don’t want to mess this up.

Psst! Psst! One way that I’m aligning my heart with His is through our Bible studies over at SheReadsTruth: we are currently studying Galatians, and we would love for you to join us!
